We were recommended to stay at Joelans when we were next door at lauiulas. Unfortunately at the time though, they had the samoan QLD rugby club staying there so there was no room. After travelling the island by scooter, we came back and stayed for 4 nights. Pro's; 1) The fale was big and god views. 2) The beach and... More

We went there in september and it was our first accomodation in Samoa. What a perfect beginnig, this familly is really friendly and welcoming ! We slept in beach fales, so just above the sea, and there was a mattress and a mosquito net. The food is also really good and what's more when you pay, you can have breakfast,... More

Falesoa is so lovely - she made us feel like family! The Fale's are named after her daughter Joelan who is really sweet. We got a good taste of Samoan hospitality! The food was amazing and lots of it. When we arrived and I enquired if their Prices (very cheap) included breakfast. Falesoa said of course and dinner - what... More

We arrived at about 5.30pm just when dinner had been served and asked if we could stay two nights-of course but first we must eat! The fales were comfortable and spacious, the scenery superb, the food was fantastic and plentiful (breakfast, lunch AND dinner included!), and the people wonderful. We met many people who had come for a few days... More

Our first biking day in Samoa and after getting the ferry across to Savaii we had a very pleasant 19km bike to get to Joelans early afternoon. A beautiful spot, fales were ideal for the one night stay and meals were substantial. easily could have stayed for a second night !

We stayed here with our 9 year old daughter. As we had hired a car, we had food and water so had food for her as the food here is traditional Samoan, which our daughter wasn't too keen on. The location is absolutely the most amazing we have stayed. Swimming, snorkeling and the most beautiful lagoon right next door made... More

For about $40 NZD you get two meals and a clean beach fale bed for the night. Add great hospitality by the owners, million dollar beach setting and swimming and this place offers the best value for your travelling dollar in Samoa. All fales are beach front with the water lapping at your door. One of the added features around... More

My dad and I had a wonderful experience at Joelan's. We chose it because it was the cheapest beach fales that we knew of in Savaii ($60 tala with dinner and breakfast) and not far from the ferry but were very pleasantly surprised and came back for two more nights after leaving for one night to drive around the island....

As a local, my family and I use places like Jolean as a weekend getaway. Being close to our home in Asaga, Jolean is my favourite destination for a lazy Sunday afternoon lying around an open fale with a cool drink and watching our two boys have a great time in the water just below us. Sione and Falesoa are... More

We made our booking (via 3 emails but never got any reply) for 1 night "transit" stay at Joelans as we did not want to drive 90 minutes to Asau in the evening (our ferry LS3 arrived in Salelologa wharf at 5 pm). At Joelan check-in, we were immediately asked to pay 70 tala x 2 for an open fale... More
